Lately, in the Sketchbook Skool community, people have been inspiring each other with ideas about how to organize your sketchbooks. Here are some tips from the artists in our community!
Let’s do a mini project. Something you can do in an about 30 minutes or even less? You can do it outside of your sketchbook, a fun side project. No pressure to make anything beautiful. Let’s keep it small. Tiny even. Let’s make a mini sketchbook and fill it right away!
Add shadow, depth, and painting effects to your line drawings by combining fountain pen and water-soluble ink with a little water. Create a totally different look with just two tools and your sketchbook.
Get comfortable with a new art tool. Use brush markers to create a huge variation of lines to your sketchbook – both thick and thin. Koosje uses grey brush markers to add shadow to her work. They dry fast so you can work quickly, don’t bleed, and are easy to layer. Do a lot with just one marker!
